When I first met Malcolm I was completely lost. I was trying to figure out what I was doing wrong. I was wondering why he seemed so comfortable with his sexuality. I was wondering how to tell the difference between a sexual predator and a victim.
Malcolm is an ex-cop turned detective with a knack for finding people who have been living in the shadows. When he has a bad day, his partner, Detective Dax, is usually there to lend a helping hand. So when he’s having a bad day, he goes to the beach with his partner and his dog.
The first two people he meets are Detective Dax and his partner, Detective Alex. Both of these guys are new to this job and very much in a hurry. Malcolm meets a man named Joe, who seems to have a big problem with him. Joe looks like a guy who might be a victim, but hes quick to point out that Malcolm has just been told that he is a wanted fugitive. Malcolm wants to help Joe, but hes just not sure how.
With all the changes that have happened in the world of police work, detective work, and the whole damn planet, it’s been a lot of fun watching Malcolm learn to be a better detective. His father, the legendary Inspector Malcolm West, has recently retired, and Malcolm is now part of the newly formed Los Angeles Police Department. He doesn’t see any reason to change his ways, and he has a hard time letting go of the old ways.
We knew that Malcolm was a police detective in the past, but that’s how he comes to be a wanted fugitive. A wanted fugitive is someone who’s wanted for something (and isn’t as good at hiding it as you are) that is currently on the loose. In this case, its that pesky dead man on the beach who might have been a wanted murderer (and not that he’s any good at avoiding being found).
Well, it’s a pretty interesting way to put it, but it’s also pretty boring. I have to say though, this is the kind of police drama that is so fun you’re laughing while you’re watching it. I’m not actually laughing at all. It just sort of happens.
It is a very well-crafted drama, and it does have a very strong female lead. I think I liked it better when I was younger and couldn’t understand her. Now that I am older and older, it has become more of a “I can tell who is who” drama. It takes place in the city of Palm Beach where we get to see first-hand the brutality of police and the power of the politicians.
The main character, Malcolm Allison West Palm Beach officer, is a police officer with a history of being in trouble with the law. He has a wife and two daughters, and he does feel like he’s in a bit of a bad situation. He isn’t the only one. He tries to hide from it all by doing whatever he can to avoid getting hurt. But his daughter, a police officer in another city, is on his case.
It’s a story about a cop on the wrong side of the law. It’s about the choices we all have to make, which can get us killed. The story is also about the people we choose to help us and how these friends and family can be put in danger and do what we cannot. Every cop on the book is in a different place, at an entirely different time, and trying to figure out what is right and what is wrong.
It is a book set in a different time and place, which is why I think the story is so interesting. It’s set in 1968, but its about the choices we all make today. There are no heroes, just people trying to do the right thing.
